Jim,

I think the black spots may just be tar. Maybe not, though. They just re-surfaced the entire parking lot & road, & this plant is right at the edge of the road. 
We didn't find any cats, but we will definitely keep looking.  That hole goes all the way through the leaf, if that means anything, not just through the surface epidermis.This whole thing is pretty unbelievable!

How long until those eggs hatch?

Great field work, Lori! Your dedication to this bug and this location is really paying off for science and butterfly enthusiasts. Thank you.

Lori,

Wow! I think that would be Creamy. Looks like the top of the leaf, yes? Gray HS would put them on the flowers as would any type of blue!
Congrats and now the fun begins? BTW, just below the bottom egg it looks like damage from feeding and above the eggs it looks like two small frass pellets. Obviously you didn't see larvae but maybe there's already a small one nearby?

This is very exciting and thanks for your field work!!

Well, I hope this is what I think it is. I believe I found 2 Creamy Stripestreak eggs on a leaf of the Silverleaf Nightshade! Jim?

Also got my first decent dorsal shot.


There were 2 together again today on the same plant, one is my original bug, original plant. Sorry it's a bit blurry, it was windy!

Hi Lori,

We never would have looked past the first if the second hadn't been right there! It would be awesome if you could look for potential breeding activity, since it's quite a haul for us to get there.

The nightshade that individual #2 was sitting on is right at the intersection for campsite 5 and the main drive/walkway. If you stand on the main drive looking at campsite #5, the plants will be on the right side of the entryway. They are so close to the main road that they are on the part of the soil that curves where the entryway asphalt transitions to the main road. I don't remember exactly where the campsite number sign is, but it was very close to the nightshade.

I have to admit, that if they are breeding or egglaying on nightshade in this area, I certainly hope it's not those plants, or at least not limited to just those plants. The nightshade is in a terrible spot in a high traffic area and it probably gets disturbed constantly when the campground is open, not to mention probably run over by vehicles on a regular basis.

Thanks, and good luck!
-Lorena

Hi Lorena,

Great documentation! All the times we were there, we only saw the one bug, & the same one, based on wing wear spots from the left side (your #4). Not for lack of looking, either. We did do a cursory check of most of the other horehound every day, but didn't scramble up the hillsides......well done!

Can you please tell me exactly where you took shot #2, the one on the nightshade (purple flowers)? I will try to confirm any eggs or cats on them.

Thanks, Lori

Buenos Aires NWR, AZ - Tropical Checkered-Skipper, Mexican Frit+

Peter DeGennaro
 

5/23 - I went down to Buenos Aires NWR to see the continuing
Clay-colored Thrush (success) and decided to hang around to look for
some leps. High winds and lack of nectar probably kept diversity down.
The best species was an apparent Tropical Checkered-Skipper (Burnsius
oileus). I'm curious what folks think on this vs Desert, which is far
more common. Any input is appreciated. The well marked underside and
dorsal hindwing spotting are making me think Tropical. It's worn
enough that the fringe field mark can't be used.

Dorsal shot: http://flic.kr/p/2j4ZwFc

Showing a bit of the underside: http://flic.kr/p/2j53bMM

Otherwise. this worn Mexican Fritillary (Euptoieta hegesia) was a
highlight: http://flic.kr/p/2j532nV

And I had my first Amblyscirtes species of the year, a Dotted Roadside-Skipper.

Full list, 33 species:

Pipevine Swallowtail 6
Checkered White 10
Orange Sulphur 3
Southern Dogface 1
Mexican Yellow 10
Sleepy Orange 5
Dainty Sulphur 2
Western Pygmy Blue 9
Marine Blue many
Reakirt's Blue many
Lupine Blue 2
Palmer's Metalmark 1
American Snout 15
Gulf Fritillary 9
Mexican Fritillary 1
Tiny Checkerspot 20
Arizona Checkerspot 7
Texan Crescent 50
American Lady 3
Painted Lady 1
Common Buckeye 15
Tropical Buckeye 1
Viceroy 2
Queen 8
Acacia Skipper 2
Golden-headed Scallopwing 10
Arizona Powdered Skipper 2
White Checkered-Skipper 2
Desert Checkered-Skipper 2
Tropical Checkered-Skipper 1
Orange Skipperling 1
Sheep Skipper 2
Dotted Roadside-Skipper 1

Great documentation work Lorena. So with at least seven individuals

seven strays all in the same spot?

All,
there are at least 5 individual Creamy Stripe-streaks at this location. I actually believe that we have documented 7 different individuals so far. I've never used the groups.io to post before, so I apologize if I fail miserably at posting my photos.

My husband, Mark, and I went looking for the butterfly yesterday afternoon, but we didn't know the location of the bush in question, so we started checking all the white horehound from the entrance to the campground. At campsite 5, we found two different individuals at the same time, one of which had a large chunk of forewing missing. I became suspicious that there might be more and so made sure to document the left underside of each. We proceeded to wander farther in and found a third individual in a large patch of horehound. At this point, we met Lori Conrad and her friend Mark (Marc?) who had missed the butterfly yesterday. Lori told us we weren't even at the bush in question! We proceeded much further in to that bush and found two more individuals at the same time, seen by all in the party. Again, I made sure to photograph all, and from the same side. Social distancing prevented us from sharing photos so we were unsure how many specimens were actually seen at that point, but could safely assume three because these latest two were not missing any patches of wing, and one was amazingly fresh. That one, which turns out to be the fifth individual, still has the smaller secondary tails which appear easy to wear off.

I compared all the pictures I took of the sightings today, and each is a different individual as proven by different wear and tear on wings and missing scales. Please see the comparison photo. If you compare pictures already posted here by others, the wing wear we observed today is also different, so we may be able to safely say that there have been at least 7 individuals documented so far. Please see Lori Conrad's image of the left side of an A. jada on May 16th, and by Elaine Halbedel's image from May 18th. I will make a side by side comparison of all of these if anyone wants me to, and the respective photographers grant permission for me to use their images.

All but one of the butterflies were found resting or nectaring on horehound, while the second individual was resting on Silverleaf Nightshade (Solanum elaeagnifolium). If I recall correctly, A. jada feeds on plants in the nightshade family, so this may be important. My picture of the first individual is actually on Mesquite because I disturbed it trying to take a photo of the left side.

If this is a significant finding, should I post in places in addition to this mailing list? Please let me know and I will do so.

It was great meeting Lori and Mark (Marc?) yesterday! And thanks very much for reporting your sighting! This is very exciting.

Wow! Thanks Lorena! I need to compare all of those photos. (BTW, Mark is my husband, Mark Conrad).

There were 2 on the original plant again this afternoon, one of them was my original bug, told my some wing wear spots. The 2nd was the pristine one.

Creamy Stripestreak update: There are now 4 of them in Sunny Flat campground! Yes, FOUR! We ran into a couple (Lauren & Mark) from Sierra Vista on our way in, who told us that they had just had 2 of them up above campsite #5, didn't know exactly where my spot was. I took them over to my spot, & there was one on the same group of horehound that I've seen every day except yesterday. As we're watching it, a 2nd one flies in to the same patch! Lauren said that one of the ones above #5 had a big chunk missing in one of the wings, & neither of these did. One was pristine! So in all likelihood, there are 4........3 for sure, based on wear.  The patches of horehound are pretty far apart from each other, so I doubt the 2 on the hill came down to "my" patch. Wow!
